LibriVox recording of Storm Over Warlock, by Andre Norton. Read by R.J. Davis.
The Throg task force struck the Terran survey camp a few minutes after dawn, without warning, and with a deadly precision which argued that the aliens had fully reconnoitered and prepared that attack. Eye-searing lances of energy lashed back and forth across the base with methodical accuracy. And a single cowering witness, flattened on a ledge in the heights above, knew that when the last of those yellow-red bolts fell, nothing human would be left alive down there.

We're sorry that you found this reading not to your liking. I, however, happen to enjoy R.J.'s voice along with several other people, so point being "to each there own". Also, LibriVox is an equal opportunity service and does not turn down any readers. This is in keeping with our over all mission of recording all PD texts. This is a goal which requires all the help which we can get. LibriVox does however accept multiple versions, so you are welcome to contribute your own version. Thanks for listening!

Fun old-fashioned scifi
I always love to read or listen to old science fiction from 50 years ago - and Storm over Warlock is no exception. A fun story, a neat glimpse into the future as it might have been, and a great reader with a classic Southern drawl.
RJ Davis reminds me of the reader of the professionally produced Dragonriders of Pern series, and he brings a down-home flavor to a story set in a fantastic world. I can't wait for more!

Good Book, bad reader
I enjoyed this book as a bit of bubblegum sci-fi. However, the narrator, R.J. Davis, has a thick southern accent, slurs the letter s and mispronounces several words. I would suggest he not be allowed to narrate anything further.
